Possible Vikings cap casualty No. 4

Garrett Bradbury, center

The interior of the offensive line continued to struggle last season and improving at center might be something the Minnesota Vikings look to do in order to protect their quarterback and open holes in the run game in 2024,

Garrett Bradbury inked a three-year deal last offseason but it has a potential out. Bradbury is set to have a salary cap hit of $5,755,165 but would have no guaranteed money to offset his release, meaning it would be pure cap relief.

Expect the Vikings to go about business as usual this offseason with Bradbury penciled in as the starting center. Still, Minnesota should explore other options at the position in the meantime and keep his release as a possibility.

Considering how much this franchise has invested in centers in recent history, it is disappointing that the position is still an issue. However, the Minnesota Vikings may need to take another swing at finding a potential long-term answer.
